[PATCH 4/5] coredump: use a freezable_schedule for the coredump_finish wait

From: Mandeep Singh Baines
Date: Thu Feb 14 2013 - 18:38:45 EST

Prevents hung_task detector from panicing the machine. This is also
needed to prevent this wait from blocking suspend.

(It doesnt' currently block suspend but it would once the next
patch in this series is applied.)
